Here are some of our suggestions:
One of our new favorites is “JOE NAME IT” by Gamewright, for ages 12 and up…..Can you name a movie with 2 sequels? How about a music group with 3 members? Test your numbers know-all in this fast-playing “name it to claim it” party game. Draw a category card and then fill in the blank with the number you rolled. Be the first person to name something that fits and you’re smarter than the average Joe!
“PICK TWO!” is our all time favorite word game for ages 8 and up.. It’s fast and fun and challenging! In “Pick Two!” each player draws letter tiles, building their own personal crossword as fast as they can. Whenever players use all their letters they yell “Pick Two!” and everyone draws two more tiles. The catch? These tiles must now be added to the crossword. The best part? You can change your crossword by rearranging letters and even words to use up your tiles. When the center tiles are gone, the first one done wins.
“Doodle Dice” by Jax is for ages 6 and up. Create a doodle with a few rolls of the Doodle Dice. There’s a different doodle pictures on each card in the deck. When you build a doodle that matches one of the cards, you take that card. Block an opponent’s turn or take one of their cards away. Collect one card of each color and you win! It’s the fun challenging way for everyone in the family to be a doodle artist, and it’s so much fun!
